Geno Bonnalie started caddying in 2015 for his childhood friend Joel Dahmen on the Korn Ferry Tour. The two grew up playing golf together and remained friends through high school and beyond. When Joel won the money title on the Canadian Tour, he earned full status on the Korn Ferry Tour. Geno wrote Joel a heartfelt letter “applying” for the job, and the two have been together since.

Geno graduated from the University of Idaho in 2007 with a business degree and also completed the PGM Program (professional golf management) to become a Club Professional. 

Geno has been married to his wife Holly for 14 years and has two children. Hudson (8) and Wynn (1). They still reside in Lewiston, Idaho and live in a single wide trailer house.
